An educational and creative present for a 2-year-old
What can a 2-year-old do?
A whirlwind of energy, fast as a lightning strike and everywhere all at once! We all know that there is no such thing as boredom with small children. On the contrary, there are endless opportunities for fun! Your child is increasingly indepedent and physically coordinated: he or she enjoys games involving movement and is perfecting the art of walking, running and jumping. Every day, it gets easier to communicate with your child. A 2-year-old speaks increasingly well, knows more and more words and is beginning to build short sentences. In fact, your child is making incredible progress in every area, is curious about the world, likes to experiment and learns by imitating adults and siblings. This is great news! You can support your child’s natural development and have lots of fun at the same time.
A recipe for fun with your child
We know what young children like and consult specialists in child development to develop our products. Our best advice: spend as much time together and do what makes you happy. Read and look at books, assemble puzzles, play games and sports, and engage in artistic activities.
At Banana Panda, we make sure our guides and toys are age-adapted in terms of form and content. What does that mean? Puzzles for toddlers, who are still practising gripping objects and developing fine motor skills, are large and durable with no sharp edges and have fewer pieces. A 2-year-old usually cannot sit for too long in one place, so the best fun should incorporate physical movement, hence our ideas for Suuuper size puzzles and games, which are best played on the floor. The illustrations are incredibly colorful with just the right amount of detail, and the themes are adapted to the interests of young children: animals, vehicles and the activities happening in their immediate surroundings.
